In 1 hr,

volume = 22 = pi (r^3)(0.7)

pi is 22/7 (approximately), so 22 = 22/7(r^3)(7/10)

22 = 22/10(r^3)
10 = r^3

So choice c,d, and e are out since 4^3, 5^3 and 10^3 are out greater than 10.

sqrt9 = 3, sqrt 16 = 4, so sqrt10 is going to be slightly above 3. So choice B is out, since r^3 = 10 * sqrt(10) which is going to be slightly above 30.

I pick A

My choice too, but we are both wrong. MGMAT ranks this as a 600 level Q problem.

Hello, I choose B, since

the amount of water that flows into the cyclindrical tank can be expressed as

22= 0,7 * r²* Pi, thus

220/7= r²* Pi, which is approx.

210/7=30= r²* Pi, since Pi equals 3,14 and 220 is slghtly above 30 we can estimate that

r²= 10,

which is B

I made an error in calculation !! Sorry, the volume of the cylinder should be pi*r^2*h. I do not know why I put it down as pi*r^3^h and even went on to work out the problem. :oops:

Here's my re-worked solution:

volume = 22 = pi (r^2)(0.7)

22 = 22/7 (7/10)(r^2)
10 = r^2
r = sqrt(10)

Ans: B

=> r= Sqrt(10) ----> B

Yes, the trick to this problem is remembering that pi=22/7.

OA is B.

obviously B

22 CM =Pi* r^2*h (balancing the volume)

22 CM = Pi*r^2*0.7

r= sqrt (22/0.7)*1/Pi BTW 22/7 = pi

r= sqrt10

Since the OA is B, and you've answered B, it means you're too good for 600 level questions, nothing to be sad about yeah? :lol:

A. sqrt10/2
B. sqrt10
C. 4
D. 5
E. 10


The area of the base = 22/0.7 = 220/7 = about 31 m^2 = Pi * r^2
--> r^2 = 31/3.14 = about 10
--> r = sqrt (10)

Answer is B

We are basically told that a cylinder with a height of 0.7 (7/10) meters has the volume of 22 cubic meters.

volume_{cylinder}=\pi{r^2}h=22 --> \pi{\approx{\frac{22}{7}}} --> \frac{22}{7}*r^2*\frac{7}{10}=22 --> r=\sqrt{10}.

Answer: B.
